If Love be of Yearning

If love be of yearning and silent need
To be found in soft hands of tenderness
To care and give become the planted seed
In love's wanton meadows that you caress
To bloom in every season filled with hope
This fragrant flower with its colored hue
Will paint each frame of love's kaleidoscope
As we turn its wheel with its changing view
To dream of love with eyes closed and a kiss
To feel its beauty as worlds wash away
A moment tender with its subtle bliss
Finds a heart yearning and asks it to stay

A need so silent becomes love fullfilled
And calms the heart beating, quiet and stilled
